THE BOND GAMES . . . 

Derrvarlii''i Tirit 8«nd licence. A View to a Kill, jppcarrd way 
back in 1965, *nd received little acclaim. WetU it was pretty 
grotty — ewen &om*rk idmit that — and featured four leveh. 
of naff arcade action with primary *ehool graphics. The turte 
WM quite good, though , , , 

Things got a bit better with Domark't i«eond Bofwl iicencs, 
the 1M7 release. The Living Day tights. The gamepfar waj 
l^imited, but fa.irty enjoyable, ancf featured ftond wandering 
along a horizontally icrolling backdrop taking pot-shots at 
baddies. It was fun, but the general reaction wa» that more 
could hive been made of the game. 

Last Chriitmat. saw the third of the 007 series. Live and Let 
Die, the game of the early 70'« Bond film. The film featured a 
lengthy bo4t chase, and it** this scene that the game ii based 
Ofi. It's a fa^-aftlon shoot 'em up, almost 4it<e Roadblajten 
on water, with you whining down a neverroding river in a 
speed boat, avoiding obstacles and blasting other craft out of 
rhe water. It's a tough and enjoyable game, but didn't reaMy 
feature Bond as such . - . 

And that brings u« ban^f up to date with Ueeoe* to Kill,

► ARCADES 





Atari's n«w driving game Is taking 
the arcades by storm ^- and lt*s easy 
to see why. Fabulous, fast^ filled- 3D 
graphics and ultra-reallstlc controls 
make for the most convincing and 
thrilling driving game yet seen In the 
arcades. Because of the highly 
authentic nature of the gameplay 
(weVe talking counter-steerlngy 
optional four-gear manual gear shift 
with clutch and utterly realistic car 
handling amongst other things) many 
first-time players find the going very 
tough indeed* But never fear.

Okay, all you Dragon 
NInJattes. Row) these lips 
from Tom Goeifroy of 
Blackpool L«n««, artd you'll 
be able to corvqiMT the 
gam«. The baddies on levels 
one, tvro, four, five, seven 
and eight are easify 
def ealMl When one 
appFOachee^ simply hit him 
one, dcK^^k ma he Jiumps over 
you, turn and hit him again, 
and keep repeating this 
procedure until he dies. 
Piece of cake. . . 

Level three Is a bH on the 
tricky side, but ttm beat 
tactic *s to k*ep ftghtfog 
until you get to Itte first 
hoie, jump Into ihe sewer 
and wade your way along 
untlS the end of the level — 
the baddies iMon't be able to 
get you, but you'll be able to 
kilt them. 

At the end of the level, 
stay on aewer level and 
make mincemeat out of the 
muTtipiying Nlnjs — w^tin, 
he won't tie able to touch 
y<}u. 

On levels five and abc, 
heep your head down and 
watch out for throwing 
start, and only move when 
tl'a clear (that's a bit 
obvk»u« Innttf). Be careful 
not to fall off the train on 
level five, or your game I* as 
good aa over. 

The b«ddl« St the end of 
level sIk Is well hard, and 
the only way you can safely 
disfjoseof htm la to use 
very well-timed flying kicks. 

A final rote« always 
collect time capaulea or 
you'll only have two 
mi routes to complete level 
eight — and that*a next to 
impoulble.

Superman (for it Is he) 
appears. Now ttie prisoners

BY MICROSTYLE 

In 1 985. Irl*h race ace Joey 
Dunlop f*nt took delivery of a 
red. white and blue dreim 
machine Ekat wis j^oing (o carry 
hifn TO 1 (tries of sucteii^ei in 
motorcycle racingi top category 
and. uUimaiely. give him the 
power he needed to take the 
woiid (hampjonship crown. 

That micNrve w» Henda'i 
neir legendary RVF 750 ^ — ind 
uivl*$$ yoti've got the n«c«s»ry 
£9. SCO to take to the road ofi the 
produccKjn vtnioa. MtcrtMiirie'i 
^mu^VttOd » pcobobty the ortty 
v^Sjr ihtt you'il come close to 
cfiMiltting Pvniop't 
achievements, . 

Before you strap on your 
teatbqn though, cake time to 
check your prt crew's cllpibi»rd. 
Thn ts basically the options meitu, 
allowtog the prospective rubber 
burTKf to tet the r^e length, 
choose to practise a course, 
change the speedo frorn 



ki lomeirei to mtles per hour and 
countless other firve-tuninrg tasks. 

And so to the rate. . . 

Kitted out in a fetching red 
rom^r suit, the pJjyer takes to 
the grid wtih eight other 
rk(e*>, e»c)i f ewlng hii engine 
to an *ar-iplttttng pitch, 



A Vroom, vnoom.' 



The lights change from red to 
green, . and they're off, jostling 
for position it efw Hrst bend — 
but are you with them! Not if 
you ovef -revved yoiir erfgine 
yOgVe nofl The tm* of the 
matter here is tivit ftVf 750 kram 
heavily tovnrds the simulation 
end of the rrarket, and as sudi 
the bike behaves ntore or less 
fdcniicaliy to the real thif^g. 
Therefore if yo^ buihi up noore 
than 8.000 revs before taking off. 
you'll prob^Fy end up pulling a 
wfKtelic and losing valuable 
sectxids- 

Th4s attention to detail prevaiLi 
throughout. With most of the 
courses based on real-fife cirtulu 
and the btke responding 
accurately to the conditions 
thrown up by them. For eKample, 
in most games of this type it's 
povUbfe to take a bend at full 



^hack and get away with it — 
not here though! R VF ?$Q was 
desrgT^ With the help of the 
pros, so evefy detail (right down 
to wht<^ gear to negotiate any 
given comer m) is as accurate as 
possible. 

And don't rt feel good! 

Gajneplay \or simulated action 
— whichever you prefer) as 
cofnplex as this takes quite a bit 
of gL'ni ng used to, but when you 
eventually do. the results are all 
the more rewarding. You rtaJty 
feel U^t you've achieved 
sonttthing rf you eftd up 'in the 
pOfnti' at the end of a race — aiwt 
you can g?ve yourself ? b«sa/ty pat 
on the back if you rnain^ge to 
complete a race without losing 
contact with your saddle. 

Different spitts result in 
.vppropriate tttfnbles — hit a tree 
and you'll somersault wildly, 
white jfctddii^ on oil wrfl produce 
a rather less extitmg result — 
but whatever hap^rts, your 
machine won't emerge 
unscathed. 

An initial fill usually r^ults in a 
loss crfC'kther the speedometer 
or the rev counter {the tatter if 
more seriioiiis, as the rev counter 
IS useful for choosing when to 
select a new gear), while further 
fklb can lose g^n and even write 
the machiine off. 

Making it to ^ very top may 
prove a long and lonely struggle 
(but not chat lonely if you use the 
Datalink t^pcion to r»ce i^gaif^ 
another ptayer). but Microstyie's 
debut hu enough depth to keep 
the aspiring champion interested 
all the way — and at least you 
won't end up packing as much 
metal n Barry Sheene.

HOW THE CHARTS ARE CREATED 
Every month Gallup contacts, on behalf of C&VG, retailers up and down the 
country to find out what you've been buying. The chart uses information from 
retailers of every size from small local stores to big high street chain stores. We 
think It's a fairer representation of the true state of sales than any other chart. 
Hope you agree.

deduced after a few mlni/tes of

But the p^xeflng Jester has 
more up hi* sleeve th»n mere 
nddles! He hat a ci>lleccion o( 
games lif logfe, at which he is 
e)«pen, and ac which ht will 
challenge you to beat hinv In 
game mode, the screen clears to

played entirety by mouse. 

So wtiat of the main pvt of the 
adventure? Here is an adventure 
in the best eradrtions of Zodc 
sa)d to be b^t^r than the 
combiiied Zoiic trilogy, all on one 
disk and still with space for SAVE

On-scr««n mapping Is available 
on a separate Kreen called by the 
command fiAP. The map is 
divided Into sectto<nk and shows 
only loctciorts previously visited 
within each section, the current 
bcsUon being highlighted with a 
flashJfig border. Movement from 
rown to room within i section 
can be achieved from the map, by 



prot^leinatically ttai i hadn't ^ad 
time to couch . . 

The sheer siie of this 
adventure, the range of 
conrkptextty of its problems, 
together with tiie inimitable 
humour of author Steve 
Meretilcy, must make Zork Zero 
withom doubt the mow 
entertaining and enioyible 
adventure I have piayed Eoditc,

ekome to Adventure Helpline, 
this month weVe got loads of 
clues and news of some tasty 
home grown software ! 




After vome months od a 
sincl diet of Sierra aoi- 
mated adventures (and 
ID Uric portions ihcy can lead 
to constipation of the mind) 
tafocom has come out of 
hibernation and given us a ftaJ 
feast t 

Zoflt Zero frooi Steve 
Meretsliy live;* tip to all hopes 
tad expectations. It is. one of 
thoftc adventurcft that makes 
me resent having to stop 
playing and write about it, 
because t just don't want lo 
kave it alone t E>e«pH« its biull 
in elues, il takes a lot of 
replacing to gel it all together, 
for saved, games rrom the nrsi 
ptay-tbrotLgfa wiU almost 
certainiy be too flawed to take 
(be game to completion! 

lo the fame month, 
Infocom has branched out 
into the role playing sphere, 
with BalfUtecht written out of 
bousCf and Marc Blaok't 
Jotttttey, described as a *fo1e 
playipg chronicle*. Marc 
Blank, oif course, wst 
co<founder of Infoeom. aitd 
eo>aulhor of the original Zork 
trilogy , along with Dave 
Lebtittc> 

tnibcom's exnmjoa into 
graphics has been done 
tStttefuUy, and is rumoured to 
be making Magnetic Scrolls 
retbifik their front-end- But 
then. Magnetic ScroUji would 
never be caught on the hop, 
I'm sure. Just a&k younelf the 
question i Why are we 
currently in iiuch a long 
Level 9^ too, will soon be 
releasing a new adventure, 
Spooky and they too are taking 
the plunge into RPG, vdth 
their first due shortly. 

And now the bad news. The 
Ad veaturer's Club seems to 
be goinj{ tbrou^ one of its 



funny phase*. At least, 1 bopc 
rt is only that, for at the time 
of wrrtiogf there are an awful 
lot of members out there with 
outstanding time on their 
aojiua] «ub«criptJon who ate 
not receiving tbcir bi-monthly 
Dossier nor getting any other 
kind of service from ACL. 

An adiwerphone message 
advising mfmbers, that the 
offices would be closed until 
the thinl week in April, wa$ 
replaced during the Tint week 
in May with an unanswered 
ringiiig tone. A mystery even 
to the ACL honorary 
President elect myself. So 
don't send subscription 
renewals or money for mail- 
order software until t report 
bener news. A djuppoint- 
meet, this, coming as it does 
rust after the most successful 
Golden Chalice Awards pre- 
sentaiioas, an event held at i 
prestige London venue. 

So for the moment at least, 
I must regretfully withdraw 
my regular prize of a yearns 
free subscription to the most 
helpful reader of the month, 
and apologise tO thOse two or 
three peopk whose prize hai 
been promised, and not yel 
fulfilled. 

ADVENTURE 
HELPLINE 

Michael Gnell has Come to my 
rescue with the whereabouts 
of that exclusive gem in Spac4 
Quest 2, Where is it? Simple if 
you read the clue section! But 
it does underlioc my point th«t 
Sierra games rend to lack 
those innocent little clues 
written into the computer rc^ 
sponses, which, given lime, 
register with the player and 
put him on ibe right track.

VENTURE 




"Alio, I read yttui review of 
King'i QutttIR and rhe pic- 
(Turs Qo p^ite 70 arc not from 
KQ4, but from SQ2!" addi 
Aiicliacl. Wrll done MichaeU 
yau spoiled the dtlibcraie 
mistake! (Well, tliai't mj 
stofy,an)rway . . .) 

C. Mayer olCamborae bits, 
comphtedyinxter. Fish, 
Bard's TaU, and Ulrima iV, 
and so not wtlhoul reason, 
considers hitn&elf lo be 'at 
(east adept' al advejuiixinj;. 
But one game that has really 
caused hitn to grind to a hilt is 
Sierra's Mtiithuni^. Afler 
compleUflg day three, Mr. 
Mayer was called home. The 
aexl momiAg, day four, the 
signal he was given to lag wat 
his ownt So his question ii — 
what on earth should he do 
about tl? 1 know the answer 
from a reader's solution aad it 
appears in the clues luciion. 
But can someone telJ me bow 
you discover this ? 

Is there anyone, but Ui^' 
one, who can heipotit Tfscn 
Woodloek. Tywn wanls to 
know £xacily how tu use ll^e 
Diantoad Coraputei- Network 
ID Thf Sydiuy Affair. Hey, 
wait a minute, this im^m% 



more than |ust a coincidence 
— Tysen lives in Diamond 
Cieek, Victoria . . . 

Tonus Aiotos Lopez comes 
from Valencia, where be is 
through part I aljmck The 
Ripper. Now he is ia need of 
help (o get into part 2. Tom as 
ha^ managed to get up, but 
doesn't know what to do with 
the things in the attic. Upstairs 
from the bedroom. 

David Monk, who used to 
live at Woodford Brid§e in 
Essex, had spent the last thr^e 
years locked up in the Asyluoi. 
If he hadn't bt^n mad when he 
entered, he would ht hy now! 
Is tht mirror any use? Why 
does Dr. McCoy keep throw- 
ing him out? All Emmit uys is 
*l wish Andy was here/ "Who 
is this Andy?'" asks. David. 

Finally this manili , Bent 
Dabl from Dram men in Nor- 
way is laaguishing in Shadiruf- 
gau, trying to Tuid the StalTOf 
Ages, Where can it be^ tf you 
know the answer to this, or 
any other of the problems 
mentioned here, drop me a

A bit pricey for a home 
grown adventtire , is Shards of 
Tittu, from Titan Games at 
nearly £15. A Time Crystal,

MatfiiL Stabiliser, has been

with thv help of the ST Adven- trophic event, you were en-

TURES 



ture creator, moving into the 
16-bit arena, olTering bopcs of 
some cheaper titles than we 
have seen of late. 

Tbejade Stone is a Spec- 
tnun ftklte front Marlin 
Games, now n written and en- 
hanced for the ST. It has 
some small but dMag ScrolUsli 
graphics which are held in 
memory and therefore display 
instantly. It also has a nice 
turn of phrase in the text, of 
which you get plenty. 

In /ade 5tone, Mallumo, a 
second rate sorceror, is plan- 
oiogto invade Lord Senidea's 
kiBgdom. Since Senidea is 
your father, you fiance rush^ps 
off to deal with the viilaLo. But 
before long a messenger ar^ 
rives. It seems Mallumn has 
imprii;ooed the yuung hothead 
and demands either you or 
your father^s lands in ex- 
change for his return. 

Meanwhile, a talk with 
Sajo, one of the King's advis- 
ers, eleicts the information 
that the only way of defeating 
Mallumo may lie with the Jade 
Stone . 

Tber« aren't many test 
adventures about nowadays, 
even for the ST! You tovid do 
far worse* and spend far more 
money, by passing this one up 
in favour of many a conun^r' 
cial offering. 



capsulated in a time bubble, 
with portals to each of the 
zones. Your task is to find the 
fragments and repair tiie Sta* 
bittser, thus revetting your era 
back to its normal eusience. 

With disai^^wintly few 
graphics, what pictures there 
are arc reasonable, but not 
exactly pretty. The text, is 
well written and imaginative. 

Finally » in Immortality 
RuUs Ok, you are an avid 
fobwer of the Treasure Hunt 
competition in the Daily 
Cnicibie. Today you pickup 
the paper and suddcoly, you 
have the answer! Yon know 
when to start looking for the 
ancient Amulet of Immortality 
a prize worth thousands! 

Heading for the Yorkshire 
hamlet of Shoreham, the 
scene of the hunt, you find a 
checkpoint has been set up by 

the Cnicible, where a belp^ 

journalist rows you over the 
river. Krom then on it's up to 
you. To reach the amulet you 
must comb the area to discov- 
er the four digits that are the 
combination for the safe in the 
bank vault in which it is 
stored. Most of the play in-^ 
volves this digit hunt. 

Not bad. overall. A fairly 
complicated if somewhat 
mundane adventure, with 
some nondeschpi g^^apbics-

with beautiful

screenshot of the ST version of Atarf 's arcade

experienced vector graphics programmer Jurgen 
FHedrldN (he who allegedly proframmed the Star

around tfie demo track, and a few whizzes

convince us that Hard DHvin' is gonna be hot-hot>

BATMAN— THE MOVIE 
Ocean 

^The Dark Knight returns in Ocean's third bat- 
game, based oft tine upcoming film starring 
Michael Keaton as Batman, Jack Nicholson as the 
Joker and a resty led Batmobile (but no Robin). 
The Joker h up to his usual high*sptrited crimes, 
this time threatening to kiH the population of 
Gotham City with nerve laughing gas. Only the 
Batman can save the city, and he starts his 
investigation in the Joker's chemical factory 
where he has to find a nerve gas sample so he can 
make an antidote. As he leaps and swings around 
the platforms he is constantly beset by evil 
henchpersons. If he should find asampie Batman 
i has to get it back to the Bat Cave for analysis. The 
' Joker Is in hot pursuit, though and he chases our 




mm p^ ^M 





hero through the scrolling streets of Gotham City. 
After analysing the gas wi^ the batcomputer, 
Batman takes off in the Batwing, neutralising 
balloons f uli of gas as he swoops over the city. The 
Ttnal confrontation takes place in Gotham 
Cathedral, where the Joker is either defeated or 
tJHe death warrant of Gotham City is signed. 
Dramatic stuff indeed! What we've seen of the 
game iooks mighty promising, and hopefully 
judging by the screenshots, yoii'll agree. The film 
and l*ie game are due for simultaneous release so 
ymj can enjoy laoth at the same tin« {if yoti think 
you can stand it),

Ocean 

This is Ocean^s venture 
into the Cinemawarey 
genre of games, which 
Is based on the 
adventures of a bunch 
of US soJdiers lost in 
Viemam after their 
piane crashes. You take 
command of the troop,

strategy action are 
some beautiful 
animated pictures, 
crunri A of which are very 






Apocalypse Now. 
Between bouts of

are arcade sequences in 
which you have to 
negotiate minefields 



and gun down

Motoring onto your computer at Christmas is 
Ocean's conversion of the Taito coin -op. In tlw 
game you Ve at the wheel of a speedy auto, in hot 
pursuit of suspected felons who aren't going to 
hang around while you ask "Is this I^OURcar, 
sonny?". Flashing your lighte and woo-wooing a

into custody Is by knocking their car off the road. 
The arcade game is ripping stuff, as is the 
Spectrum version, a demo of which we've %^^ 
with our own eyes, and which is depicted here. It's 
fast, it's smooth, It's practically a monochrome 
version of the arcade machine, with whopping 
graphics shifting about the place as if they're on

Dear YOB. 

I am wrtt^ng to complain about 
the lack of One coverage in 
your "new look" magaJBtrw 
On behalf Of the two or so Ofic 
users. Id just Wee to say tfiat its 
an uryusufied outrageous 
traveuy of human Justlnie. in 
yotir June Issue my fiicrxf and I 
counted NO Oric games 
Cdvefage whatsoever in your 
magazine — it's just become a 
waste ol mgniy. tttm great 
shame corKkJering the power 
of dils maehine, especially with 
BASIC c«nmands such ^ 
"zap", "p»r»g", "shoot" and 
"o^iiodc" which make me 
Amiga souTkl tike a cow on

I would ike IQ ^ Juli^

growing number of Oric users 
(my ftlend s dog bought one 
yesterday) and would also like 
him to print some tips on

sort of Interface or a CD-*OM

and if so could you publish tf>e

guessed it, the PC Engine, I do 
feel though that if this 
woryjer ous machine as is good 
as everyone is saying, how is it 
that It oniy manages to get 
three or four pages a month at 
the back of C+VG Surely more 
information than thJs you must 
have In your llttJe mitts after 
four weeks. 

Something else 1 would like 
to mentkjn is do you think 
there will tie a PC Engine top 
? D sellir^ games in your maq, 
when It gets off the ground a

POSSESSION 

• Once you've selected ttie bell, it's wise not to Iteep hold 
of It too long or you'll be tackled, Uae passing play by 1 
kicidng it diagonally acrosa tfie pitclr from one piayer to 

other, 
good tactic is to chip tiie t>all over an opponent, or 
p of opponents, snd run through tt>em and picic up 
again. 

• If you're piaylrtg a low seed team (eg USA), you can 
easily dribble the ball up the pitch, and If you Ve tacliled, it's 

rsy to retrieve the ball. 
Wtten you're playing high seeds like Italy, you should 
the tMil moving by contimial passing. 

LKECPINO 

Ji When you dive for a t»atl, keep preaalng the lire button i 
pou Instantly dive again wtien the goalie gets up. 

• When an opponent Is approaching, run towards him and 
narrow the angle — if tfie (Hayer kicks it at the keeper, he 
aulometically catcties it 

ERAL 

• Wherte ver you banana-kick the liatl, bend it away fri 
^'Ihe goalie by using tt>e diagonals. 

• Volleys are great replies to goal kicks and crappy 
cletrsfKes. 

• If you have the bell in your area, star>d by the dead ball 
prie and the opposing player tackles you and sends ttw ball 

out oi play and you're awarded a goal hick. 

• When you take a goal hick, make sure all the players 
have run up tfie fiekJ before you weiiy tiie ball. 

Long passes directfy up the pitch cut down the chai 
you being tackled.

use Is to surround your

IMALLY 

• Try to use ss little manrw 
as possible at ttie start of 
ttie game. 

• Keep an eye on your 
enemy's movement. 

• Keep to small settlements 
until you have lots of 
followers and grac&uriiy 
iHiilduplheelxeof 
settlements, (the bigger the 
eetttemant, ttie more mannll 
produces). 

• H attacked by an enemy 
knight, try not to attack him 
using your foltowers. as It's 
usually a futNe geeture. Use 
swamps or ttie Influence 
Icons to guide your 



lolkMrers away from him. Kle

• Try and avoid using too 
many aerthquaitee — you 
eventiwily end up doing 
mora harm to yoursalt ttian

• The way to gain Ddnts Is 
lo build as many

• It you use Armageddon,

KNIQHTS: These are 1 
most destructive of your 
otlowera. They simply 
invade territory, fight enemy 
follo w er s and bum down 
ttiatrdwalltoigB. They are 
very difficult to destroy. 
One way has already been 
outlined above (see

Knights can win or lose the 
game for you, so be aware 
of enemy knights creepir>g

FLOOD: Reducea the level 
of land by one, so if your 
enemy has Iwllt on low*

wipe him out In one blow (or

RUNNING MAN 



If you b«u{|lit this rattMr d<l*«p|»olnlln9 lic«nc« «nd 
ar« having hasftl* d«f«jitkig all tiM b«dd1««, tiY out 
th«s« tips from Mark Stafining of Brighlon — 'coa ha 
haaall tha answara y'ou'fa iooliififl for. Thasa tipa 
wara sani In for Iha Amiya v«r«ion, but I don't mmm 
any raason why tliay wan^t warli on othar waraiona, 
Oiva 'am a whizz . , . 



LEVEL ONE: Wh«n«vaf you want to l««p onto a platfiKin, 
Juat run and jump. If you're having any pfoblems wltt> the 
dogs. |u8t kick or punch them (I think tfia RSPCA ought 
to haar about thia — JR). Th« bast way to dlapOia 04 a 
canine Is to atand atilf with lire button TwkJ down, and then 
pull left or rlgtht, dependiiig on th« direction of the dog 
when It comes within kicJiIng or punching range. Knocktnhg 
out a pooch rewards you with a llttie extra energy — uiefuf. 
To jump the crevasse you must run and jump. To achieve 
this simply ryn towards the steps, Jump up and run 
bacKwarda and fonMarda, (until you are confkjant) and jump 
between the first two black slants. Keep pushing the 
joystick up diagonally, even when jumping, and yoit'ff 
Immediately |umpa iacond lime wt>en you land on the 
middle platform, and clear the obstecle. Once you're safely 
across, keep ninnlng and jump the dogS~ hanging arourtd 
to kick them could mean that you get hit by an exploding 
puck thrown by the first baddle. Subzero. Try and avoid 
Subzero and the doge until you reach the camera at the end 
Ol the level. Here you'll notice Subzero has to turn around 
as n Is the end of the s<;re«n. Walk a little away from the 
camart and wait for Subzero to appear again. When he 
comaa straight for you, expect him to fire a puck ao jump 
straight up Into the air and he runs behind you. When he 
turns around he won't have time to fire another puck SO * 
kick or punch him as he cornea towards you, and if you're 
quick you can also kick him as he goes past you aa well. 
Keep doing this until he dies. 



LEVEL TWO: Run along 

and lump onto the boxes, 
avoiding any dogs when 
runnlFvg, The dogs cannot 
climb onto the boxes, so 
you are safe here. The brick 
la not much use, so It's wise 
not to pick it up. 
Crawl through the 
rusty pipe and over ttia 
boxes. Run along and you 
encounter Buzzsaw. 8e 
careful here, as there are 
loads of dogs marauding 
around. You CAN'T jump 
over Buzz&aw wher» he is 
aiming the saw at you but 
you CAN jump him at other 
times, although this Is not 
wlae. The best way to deat 



with him l« to whop him with 
the lead pipe wtien he 
approaches you. As soon 
PS you hit him (or miss him) 
get to crawling position and 
crawl past him, ha »nnet 
hurt you If you're crawiirtg 
— taut watch out for dogs, 
which can. WT>en he's 
standing Over yOu (Whilst In 
crawling position} he will 
run In the opposite direction 
to you. At this point stand 
up and with a quick flick 
stand In his direction and as 
he runs towards you, hit 
him with the pipe and duck 
to the crawl position. Keep 
hitting and crawling until he 
Is dead. 



LEVEL THREE: Here you 

have to tackle Dynamo, who's 

the hardest ofiponent of all. First you'll find a dog either 

charging at you or hot on your beala. Run to the blocks and 

Jump up and over. There's a medl pack juat past hare, to 
pick it up. Run past the first light bulb arKj tihian atari 
walking. Dynamo appears near the second tight bulb. As 
soon as he appears, he fires at you. You can duck to avoid 
^teae elsctTlcal bursts, but he can also fire at crawl and 
ducked height as well. The ONLY way to kill him Is with ttia 
club — kicking him merely gives you an electric shock. To 
reach this club takes time — this Is because every time 
dynamo sees you he fires an electrlcai bolt at you. lo stop 
him doing thia, and lo reach ttie club« simply walk away 
from him when he first appears, just at»out 4-5 paces, turn 
round ar>d run back at him. He should be tn his ear which 
you will be able to (ump over. If he's still there don't worry 
~- just walk a couple of extra paces away from him than run 
towards him again and he should tie In the car. Jump over 
the car whilst running towards the club and the car will go 
past you. tl doesn't take long for the car lo turn around and 
come atralght back styou. At this |>oint you'll have to judge 
for yourseff at what point you turn around and jump over 
the car again. Rur» towards the left of the screen 4-5 paces 
as before to stop him getting out of the car and firing at you. 
After a (ew pacaa, turn around snd run again to the right of 
the screen, jumping over tfie car, Vou will have to keep 
doing this, backwards and forwards, jumping tf>e car and 
any dogs which you find. When you reach the club, pick It 
up. Dynamo appeara again and fires at you. Duck the 
electric bolt and then as tt files above your head, stand up 
and walk one pace towards [>ynamo. Ha firas again, so \ 
duck and as the bolt I a above your head stand up and walk 
towards him. You need to get fairly close to him — hm fires 
In predictable bursts — and when you're within striking 
distance he walks past you and turna around arMi fires — 
use this opportunity to club him from behind. When you art 
at the right distance from him duck when he fires, stand up, 
hit him once tfien duck (not too soon as it will r^ult In him 
firing at you in a crouch posilton). Timing is essanttsi — 
whan ttafbas again, stand up, hit him and prepare to duck, 
Altar a fsw blows he will vaporise In a Hash of llghL 



LEVEL FlW;Ttils la fairly 
straightforward. Run to the right 
of the screen, avoiding dogs. After running through a 
building you face one of seven armed guards who race 
towards you and fire. To avoid the bullets, crawl ~ dont 
duck. They fire one bullal at a time so thare's plenty of time 
in bscwssn each bullet to kick or punch them — three or 
four wtllBlmsd hlta is enough to kill them off. Avoid the 
dogs and keep going. When you find a medl pack, pick It 
up, and grab the gun aa aoon as you see it. To operate this 
use the punch movemant. By using bullets and kicking tlie 
gusrds you will get to your destination — Killlas. Jump onto 
the blocks and you will sea him. He doesn't fight back so 
just kick, punch or fire at him and he spins around and 
walks backwards and finally he talis Into the contraption 
and is launched down the tube. You will sea him bounce 
across the floor and smash Into tf>e poster. And ttiat's the 
end. Feb, eh? 





LEVEL FOUR; Start 

mnnlng to th« right «ndi 
avoid ihe dogs. Don t use 
the brick — the shiekj Is ttw 
object to §0 for, K^ep going 
until Fireball appears. Ke 
Instafitly flree st you, so 
drop to the crawl position 
•net keep going towards 
Mm, He cent hurt you when 
you're crawling — but you 
do have to watch out for 
doga. Aa you approach him 
hftilaits KIs ^t pack, to 
atand up arwl kick or punch 
him to inflict damage. Keep 
running towards the ahietd, 
and wtwn you see the flame, 
don't duck — just crawl. 
When you have reached die 
shietd, pick tt up and face 
him. Any of the tiannes 
aimed at you extinguish 
when they hit the shield (to 
operate the shield press fire 
lavtton and hold H left or 
right). As he gets closer to 
you he fires into the shield 
and H: deflects beck at him 
end depletes his energy.

AME TIPS 



^y/A////////////// 



SEGA 



COMMAND 

Ace Sega player, Wdilain 
Suther1ai>d from Edinburgh, 
hue reveated a juicy tip let 
for players of this light gun 
game. From levels three and 
onwards you can continue 
the game {atthough you 
rmivt select a two-player 
game). Just toggle tlw 
foypad left to right white 
preeslrig both fire buttons 
wfrwi youf gafM eiKlB. 



mortal coif. Mandrenars Is 
hafder. Go up to the 
borfzontalty scrolling 
tiodyguards and pracft both 
buttons «t the sam* Hme 
very, very quicldy, ttwn take 
out ttw bsddie. When you're 
attacked by Lobster, goad 
him into using his sword, 
ttten jump and fire et him. 
Kaepon doing this move 
until he's destroyed. The 
Evil NinJB certainly Is. When 
he is on jump klck^punch 
mode, keep Jumpir^ him 
and wt^en he is in a corner 
kick, punch or fire at him 
r>on>8top. 



RAMBO III ROCKY 



When you reach ttie erKi of 
levet baddie on level D, keep 
firing in the mkldle of the 
screen and t>ung your 
grenade ai the three mini 
helicopters to finish the 
screen without hassle. 



Plug your rapid (Ire unit into 
pert orie. During the bonus 
stages (punch bag and t>aii) 
kaap your fingers on both 
buttons, and you'll build up 
enough power to beatile to 
defeat Orago quite easily. 







SHINOBI 

If you're a bit crap at tfila 
excellent Sega conversion, 
have a gartder at this advico 
from Wliiiem Sutherland 
and your performance 
si^KHild Improve no And, 
especially if you ttwse lips 
are used In conjunction with 
last month's map. When 
you reach Ken Oh, jump at 
the back wall when the 
flames appear, then crawl or 
walk underneettti them, jump 
and fire at his eyes. B«Ating 
Black Turtle Is a piece ol 
pi . . . er . . . cake — just 
jump, fire, jump, fire and so 
On until Ite shuffles off this 



MIRACLE

cttest, open K and you are 
be confronted by a 
guardian- Defeat it gind you 



will be granted with one of 
the three keys {Heaven, 
Earth or Hell). Keep doing 
this until you win ail three 
keys. 

SAFARI 

Safari so*goodle! Weil, ft la 
wt>en you use this Mark 
Oxiey tip. When you shoot 
the panther or any other 
wild animal, keep shooting 
at it to gain even more

unit witt make It even 
easier}.

AME TrPS 



► C64 AMIGA 



ROCKET 
RANGER 

C$4, PC larid Amiga owners 
{and vrantuftlly ST owners, 
when the game finally 
•rrlv»« on this forma!) 
shoukj ttnd the bstlle 
against the Nazis tar easier 
when they make use the tips 
•enl In by Stephen Wrench 
of Wa rri ngto n , C hesh I re , 

First Q( all, go straight to 
ttie vnr room — ignore the 
ZeppeFin for now. Collect all 
live agients so that you have 
all In rsMfv*. Place yoiir 
•g*rrta In Mm countries 
surrounding Europe — 
Aig«rta, Libya. Egypt, Mid 
East and Russia. Thts 
should now contain the 
Nazis in Europe. 

When you've dorie that, 
go to Ihe ZeppeUn and try 
■nd rescue the Barnstotfs. 
When you ve done that, go 
back to Fort Qix. and Ihe 
agents should now be ready 
to report back to you, as 
they have now inliltrated 
their country. Flead the 
reports and get them to 
organise resistance in their 
countries, if you are luclty 
this will contain the Nazis. 

Now try and find the Na^ 
t»&e. because you are 
going to need It wtien you 
collect ttw five rocket parts. 
Nine times out of ten the 
base is in Peru. The deaeri 
b«8e is usually found In the 




Congo or Kenya, Go 
straight to the Zeppelin 
factories, camps and bomb 
and airplane factories 
because you have got to 
keep f4azi efficiency at a 
minimum to give yourself 
chance to find the bues 
and f ocJtet parts. 

In ttio course of the game 
the Zeppelin will appear on 
ttie screen again — you 
don't have much choice but 
to go and rescue the 
BarnstoHs because if you 
don't, Lunarium production 
wilt be Increased, 

The first time Ihe Zeppelin 
appears, you can't blow It 
up because you're too tar 
away. The second time la 
tricky but gets a bit easier 
with practice — you have to 
try and shoot ttw gondola 
whilst avoiding the missi^. 
The best thing to do is wait 
for a gap and siioot edtier 
one or two shots ~ a looae 




shot will biow up tl>e 
airsltip. When you g«t It 
right a green flash comes 
from me bac* of the 
Zeppelin, followed by 
machine gunfire. "Gre«l 
shooting"; you>e told, and 
you now confront (he 
Barnalofts. 

rt It's the first time you're 
In the Zeppelin your replies 
should t>e: Loosen Up 
Dollface, i like your style» I 
oughtta teach you, I took 
I hie scenic route, Can you 
use some help? 

If K'a your second time, 
say: I'm glad to see you loo, 
I just want lo help you. Can 
you use some help? 

On the third time, say: ¥6 
be happy to leave, I just 
want lo help you, Can you 
use some help? 

When you give tt>e corrsct 
replies you will take ttm 
BarnstofJs tiack to Amerl^. 

Fighting the guards takes 
a brl of practice, foul try and 
persevere — ttie first three 
V* relatively easy. The 
fourth and fifth are very 
tough, and the best way to 
deal with tt>em is by 
continual jabbing at the 
face, with upptercuts to the 
face whenever possitjie. 
Body shots «rs no good. 11 
he hits you, push ttie 
joystick up as this prevents 
him from hitting you with 
multiple blows. After about 
three punches try 8r>d jab or 
uppercut him tiecause he'll 
hit you with a body shot If 
you don't. 



COMBAT 
SCHOOL 

Okay, all you rookie 
commandos — Stsvan 
Taylor of ChestSffleid htt 1 
useful tip for you. If you've 
got an autofl re joystick, 
switch on autoflre during 
the iron Man race artd 
waggte foysltck — you don't 
touch the ground, so you 
don't have to bother about 
avoiding rocks and silly 
things like tfiaL 

SDI 

Yet another Steven Taylor 
tip. On the option page, 
press X, C, T and SPACE (he 
doesn't say wtiettier tt>«y 
should IM pressed togettwr, 
or in that order, so you'll 
have lo work that one out 
I'm afraid} lo access the 
hiddsnchwit 




LAST NIN JA 
II 

tf you can't light all candles 
In tfie allotted time, just Itgh; 
oiw candle at Ihe same 
moment your opponent 
awakes. Thte candle stays 
lit, so if you die you only 
fiave four to llghL 

DRAGON 
NtNJA 

When you die on the fourth 
level and It says "Rewind 
tape", don't. Just leave ttM 
tstpe running and level five 
automatically ioftds snd you 
get ftve lives and a full 
quota of time with which to 
finish Xtvb level.

WIN A 

NEW ZEALAND ST 

COIN-OP 

Wowi IS It true? Yes It Isi! Those wonderful, fovety 
people at Ocean were so pleased with the C+VC 
HIT! review of tnelr conversion of New Zealand 
Story last month that they've decided to dish out 
a real New Zealand story coin-op to the wtnner of 
this C+VC ultra-comp. 

And It's not Just a normal coln-op, 

with a bit of technical Jiggery-pokery. Ocean 
have squeezed the machine Into a medium-sized 
metal suitcase, and It comes with Its own external 
portable monitor, so you can even take it round to 
a mate's house (and It doesn't take up half the 
living room). 

The star of New Zealand Story is undoubtedly 
the cute Kiwi hero — pictured here. But what we 
want you to do is draw his twin brother, who's 
well "ard. Let your Imagination run riot— he could 
be a Ninia Kiwi an Assault Kiwi, or even a Cyber- 
Kiw( — it's totaliy up to you. 

Pop your drawing Into an envelope together 
with your nanne and address, and send it to: MY 
KIWI IS so HARD YOU'LL HAVE KITTENS COM P. C+VC. 
PRIORY COURT. 30-32 FARRINCDON LANE. LONDON. 
EC1 R 3AU. Make sure your entry arrives before 
August 25th, and you could well be on your way to 
winning the coin-op!

b* inov«d sreund him lo shield 
him from enemy Tire or to ram 
opposing droids, but ytju can 
shoot through It. which is. handy, 
f CMLt can also ten y of artfy 
"capture" traps, and prevent 
them from firmg it ybu. 

The droids come m Bi^

Getting shot and capturing 
obfects uses up precious er^^rgy, 
and of course, if Monitor runs out

the trapdoors don't just hide

Larry Dl, What more could an 
adventure fan ask for? 




STUCK IN

Andrew Howard is marooited 
OA the pknei Kcrona, at a 
Jocation c*ljed Ulcnce Flats. 
His droid asks him "To which 
tcctoT do yi'ou want to go?*% and 
Afldfew, 4gc4 8, is |o*t for 
wDtrds. Who can hcLp him with 
this windy problem? 

Come in Mik Brookes, wbo

their game Werewolf 
Simuhlor, Here itt$1«ad is SOtlW 
support from your favourite 
Diag, courtesy of Patrick Halm 
from Gouda iti the 
Netherlands. In the libnar^ , get 
tilt book, then tike it to the 
doctor's house, knock on the

Here's a tip for Lcimn Suit

frustrated by the obligatory 
questions before the game can 
be started. Press AJi-X or AK-Z 
li) skip them, says Nico Schiap 
of Katwyk in HoUand . Nico 
didn't say which nuchrne this 
applies to, btit I can confirm 
that it works like magic on the 
ST I The chances are thai it 
works on other fortnats too, but 
I dida'i luve any otlicr versions 



of Larry to check out. Worth a 
try, anyway!

REVIEWS 

It's not only Hiimc Grown 
adventures that don't always 
get a full review in these pages. 
After a lean period with no 
more than gne or two 
mainstream commercial 
adventure releaseis each month, 
there has recently been a suige. 
Infocoffi his just flooded the 
market with what appears to be 
their entire output for a ytu, at 
a lime when there are quite a 
few other new and inieresiing 
games around . 

As a consequence, there just 
hasn't been cniHigh space in the 
magazine to cover all of them 
with a full review. So here's 
where We c«tch up on those 
missed titles. First a game that 
I'm stue wUl have enormous 
appeal to adveniurt players, 
and yet is not, strictly speakingt 
an adventure. Aiiiienium 2.2

^VENTURE 




Amiga, AiAri ST, PC, £24.99) 
is, ai I firsi ^iaoict, a sumicgy 
game whh a few arcade shoot - 
em-up lequences. Yet during 
play some very uncJ^pcvted 
events occur, posing a nucnbcr 
of ibnning problems that 
effectively change the ^iniiegy 
in mid'game, 

S«l id ihe year 2200, Earth 
has been devastated in i 
collision with an as^icroid . and 
(apparently) the only remaining 
human colony is Lum Ba^ic, of 
W'hich you are the cooimander, 
The base has minini;, 
maituraciuring, and nesearch 
facilities, and iht 6bject of the 
gimc 14 to restore Earth to a 
habitable stale, by making atKl 
sending a Terraforma there. 
Whilst you tOK discovering how 
to build a Terrafonna, pUy 
centres around exploiuiion of 
the mineral wealth avaibble in 
the solar system. Probes must 
he sent out, their data 
researched, and bases set up on 
luiubk planets to service a 
fleet of spacecraft ferrying 
minerals lo the moon's 
production fidlitiei. 

A Bptnner iiilirowB jato tbe 



works when the lunar 
settlement is challenged by a 
hiiherio unheard of Mardan 
colony. Thus a balance cnusi be 
struck between the mainstream 
business, and the production 
and deployment of defensive 
wQponiy, to safeguard the 
pUn 10 save Earth. Attacks 
come without waniing, and it 
takes some planning %o supply 
far ftung bases with 
replenishment weapons when 
they are nearly one year distant! 

Operated by mouse accessing 
a series of windowi, MiUenium 
2,2 h something quite 
different, andc:ictremely 
addictive. And there are edge- 
of-Scat surprises in store, ri^t 
up to the very end! (Yes, I 
dtinnit! I saved the Earth!). 

A mofe conventional 
adventure is Infocom's Sbt^un 
(Acuvisiori/[nfocom, Anuga, 
£24.99), a sensitive adaptation 
by Dave Leblitig of the best 
selling novel by James Clavell. 
Infocom graphics are uud hefc 
in an entirely different way 
from the Zvrk Zero apprcach. 
As well 'is attractive Japanese 
screen borders, location based 
picturs appear from time to 



lime. Just to be different, one 
mpposea, these are displayed lo 
the side of the IcXl rather than 
above it, and eventually scroll 
up out of sight. 

The story is told in chapters, 
and with you playing the part 
oflohnBlackthorne, opens on 
the bridge of the Erasmus. 
Yours is the only surviving ship 
of a fleet of five. With half of 
your crew dead, and the 
survives suffering from disease 
and starvation, you face a 
devastating $iorm. Your fvs.t 
objective is to reach land safdy, 
and this involves cotiunanding 
the crew, and controlling the 
ship, all achieved surprisiogly, 
yet very realistically with text 
commands, 

Whilst in strict adventure 
format, the problems are more 
of strategy and behaviour than 
of the more fsuniliar object 
manipulation type. This tends 
to make the built-in clue 
system more readily usable, 
since Shogun does not 
engender that "don't tell me or 
it wilt spoil the gainc" 
atmosphere. Don't expect 
humour, but do expect a very 
good interactive interpretation 
of the book. 

Finally) Journey 
(Activision/lnfocom Amiga 
04.99) is classed by Infocom 
as a "role playing chronicle", 
and was written by Marc 
Bbnkf co-founder of Infocom 
with Dave Lebting, and also 
oo-author of the odginal Zork 
trilogy. fovrn<} tells a story of 
the search for Astrix, a wizud, 
to appeal for his help in ridding 
the land of disease, drought, 
and famine. 

A party of four sets off, and 
they are controlled by selecting 
text comraands wuh the mouse 
from command words 
coDtuned JD i Kiia «f bcma at 



the bottom of the screen. 
Actions possible by each 
member of the party arc listed, 
and having selected one, a list 
of vaLd objects is displayed in 
the next box, to pick over. A 
further box contains commandl 
for the whole party [eg 
PROCEED) and for the game 
(eg SAVE). Thus the problems 
are "multiple choice" type, but 
even so, I had a phone call from 
an adventurer in Denmark the 
other day , who has stuck 
towards the end of the game, 
/ourney is illustrated with 
mini-pictures displayed to the 
left of the text, which scrolls 
independently. More a story 
than a puzzle adventure, but it 
has its moments. 

ACL — RIP 

The Adveoturer's Club Ltd. is 
now well and trtily dead^ Henry 
Mueller, its proprietor^ has 
gone to earth without so much 
as a "Sorry and goodbye". 
I suggest members write 
demaoding a refund of their 
outstanding balance, calculated 
from 28 Februar>\ Send it 
recorded delivery, and keep 
a copy of the letter. This advice 
extends to those C+ VG 
adventurers to whom I have 
awarded the prize of a "free" 
ACL subscription. 

Those readers deserted by 
ACL, and in fact anyone else 
looking for a good fanzine, 
would do well to take a look at

SOLUTIONS 
— WOULD 
YOU USE 
ONE? 

h wa<i not surprising, perhaps, 
that Bill Pickworth, of New 
MiJion in Hampshire, was a 
little taken aback when [ 
mentioned] I met a thorny 
problem whilst reviewing Space 
Quc^i U— to wit, 1 he 
whereabouts of the gem, "The 
djlficulty raises the question of 
whether reviewers normally 
have available some form of 
guide to the game provided by 
the software house at the time 
of reviewing the game, I would 
have thought ji would be very 
much in both your interests, 
and that vA the software houae. 

"Your reviewers presumably 
cannol have unlimited time to 
devote to aJJ the possibilities 
offered by games — and as 1 
should have thought that 
reviews have a very significant 
impact on the sales of the 
games reviewed. I would have 
thought that software houses 
would be most anxious thai 
your reviewers should have » 
fuH a knowledge as possible 
whilst writing the review. 
Ultimately, of course, better 
reviews are in your readers 
intcresls as purchasers, of 
games, and therefore also in 
your interests as a magazine . ' * 

Bill raises an interesting 
point. Sometimes a problem 
early on can be so bafOing that 
hours can be spent trj'ing to 
cmck it , before being able to 
gel far enough into the game to 
write a review.

and obstacles) where 
the biggest Harley rally 
in the world is taking 
place. There^ ycHj can 
partake in five different 
Harley contests, 



including a drag race 
and a slow ride contest* 
A neat feature is that 
you can customise your 
bike any way you like 
— and yoy can even get 
yourself a 
custom^pai n ted 
helmet. It certainly 
sounds interesting— 
Harley fans should keep 
their eyes peeled for a

tike a turbo^harged

first of the game's four 
levels, you drive a 





motorbike through a 
city, shooting all and 



sundry, and picking up 
extra weapons from 
supply vans. As the 
game progresses you 
take over the controls 
of a fabby car^ then a 
heavily 'be weaponed jet 



fighter. Core Software 
(producers of the 
acclaimed Rick 
Danj^rous) have done 
the programming and 
the result is quite a

pretty good fun so 
we're hoping for a

VERMINATOR 
^inbird 

Yell, it's about time, 
tool This game seems 
to hive been on the 
starting blocks since 
'^ontius was a pilot, but 
vhat with the 
rogrammer being 
<iken ill, then Firebird 
and its associated labels 
being sold to 
Mi crop rose, 
Verminntor's had Its 
fair share of hold-ups. 
It's a flick-screen 
arcade adventure set in 
an oak tree city whidt is 
riddled with 
woodworm and other 

ests. As the three- 
legged Vermin ator, 
your job is to trog 
through the tree, 
tapping the little bugs' 
skulls to earn csuh, to 
buy extra weapons to 
kill more bugs, and so 
on. As you can see from 
the pic, the graphics are 
more colourful than 
Roger Melly's language, 




and the pre-production 
version we played was 
a thoroughly jolly 
wheeze. Look out for 
the review in the next
